Expect delays on K-Beach this week

Posted: Sunday, August 24, 2008

Motorists can expect delays Monday through Thursday along Kalifornsky Beach Road while crews put paving atop parts of the summer-long highway reconstruction project.

Travis Cline, spokesman for the contractor, QAP, said they would try to hold delays to under 20 minutes.

Paving will begin with the northbound lane on Monday, and the southbound lane on Tuesday, from Kalgin Drive at about Mile 13.5 (measured from the road's Kasilof end) and Mile 16.

On Wednesday and Thursday, paving will commence on the portion between Mile 11 and Mile 13.5, with the northbound lanes done Wednesday, and the southbound lanes on Thursday.

All work will be done between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Schedules are subject to change.

Cline said the paving of driveway approaches would be done after Labor Day.

The entire $9 million state-funded project is rehabilitating K-Beach between the Sterling Highway and Mile 4.3 and between Mile 11 and Mile 16.2 near Bridge Access Road. The road has been widened and six-foot shoulders added. The project is to be completed around the middle of September.
